Improved Visual Cognition through Stroboscopic Training.
(Front Psychol, 2011)
Humans have a remarkable capacity to learn and adapt, but surprisingly little research has demonstrated generalized learning in which new skills and strategies can be used flexibly across a range of tasks and contexts. In ...
Cholera in Haiti and Other Caribbean Regions, 19th Century
(Emerging Infectious Diseases (CDC), 2011-11)
A comparison of temperament in nonhuman apes and human infants.
(Dev Sci, 2011-11)
The adaptive behavior of primates, including humans, is often mediated by temperament. Human behavior likely differs from that of other primates in part due to temperament. In the current study we compared the reaction of ...
An experience-sampling study of depressive symptoms and their social context.
(J Nerv Ment Dis, 2011-06)
Both clinical and subclinical depression are associated with social impairment; however, few studies have examined the impact of social contact in the daily lives of people with depressive symptoms. The current study used ...
Neurocognitive mechanisms of fear conditioning and vulnerability to anxiety.
(Front Hum Neurosci, 2011)
Rapid modulation of sensory processing induced by stimulus conflict.
(J Cogn Neurosci, 2011-09)
Humans are constantly confronted with environmental stimuli that conflict with task goals and can interfere with successful behavior. Prevailing theories propose the existence of cognitive control mechanisms that can suppress ...
Unpredictability and uncertainty in anxiety: a new direction for emotional timing research.
(Front Integr Neurosci, 2011)
The role of stimulus salience and attentional capture across the neural hierarchy in a stop-signal task.
(PLoS One, 2011)
Inhibitory motor control is a core function of cognitive control. Evidence from diverse experimental approaches has linked this function to a mostly right-lateralized network of cortical and subcortical areas, wherein a ...
Literary Biomimesis: Mirror Neurons and the Ontological Priority of Representation
(California Italian Studies, 2011)
Reduced hippocampal and amygdala activity predicts memory distortions for trauma reminders in combat-related PTSD.
(J Psychiatr Res, 2011-05)
Neurobiological models of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) suggest that altered activity in the medial temporal lobes (MTL) during encoding of traumatic memories contribute to the development and maintenance of the disorder. ...
